Friday Favorites: Fig & Caramelized Onion Tart

IT’S FIG SEASON! I feel like a little girl jumping up and down screaming that over and over like I’m going to Disney World for the first time. Seriously, figs are one of my favorite fruits of all time. That is, the fresh ones are. The dried ones taste grainy and too sweet for my […]

Late summer in San Diego is one of my favorite times of year. The sunsets are pink and gold, the tourists are thinning out, the mornings are chill and dewy and the fresh produce is abundant. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but we are so lucky to have so many small organic farms in […]

  Although I love to cook, sometimes I am just too busy to make a complete meal from scratch. I do have a full-time job and it can be difficult after a long day at work to spend extra time in the kitchen prepping and cooking a meal. At the same time, however, I like […]

  As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been all about comfort food lately. The best comfort food is home-cooked and made with love. It tells the person you make it for that you care for them and hold them close to your heart. It wraps them in a warm blanket and keeps them […]
